Review summary

5 out of 5
Fast and easy the people are so nice and helpful especially for us . Dave has a problem walking any distance and has a cane so they directed us to area so he could sit down While I filled out our paper then we got right up to the nearest table to get our room cards . Then over to the wheel chair area where we waited maybe 15 minutes for our turn, they bring in a wheelchair and take you straight to your cabin.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Main dining room was excellent the food was amazing and the couple at our table were friendly and found out they were from the same area we are. Had great conversations. The waiters were excellent always happy and always remembered what our favorite drinks were and our favorite dishes. We we're always greeted with a smile and a how are you. Very fast and efficient workers. The Chef was fabulous cause the food had so much flavor all the time . Great food choices and you can have as many items on menu as you want. The buffet was not up to par no flavor in anything . Always crowded and hard to find a table. The grill outside was really good great hamburgers and hotdogs and chicken sandwich with fries. The ice cream bar was great too

Wheelhouse Bar

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Loved the Santuary it's in the very back of the ship on the top deck private area you have to reserve your spot before hand . You are so pampered. You can order food. You have your own pool and only like 14 couples in this area . In the afternoon they had tea time with he little sandwiches and cakes and scones . We did the afternoon from 1 to 5 and had a shaded area it was so perfect. But if I had known I would have booked a spot the minute I got on the ship and reserved the day for when we want thru the canal it was the pefect place to be Activities I did was Zumba classes and line dancing classes . Slot tournament Bingo,

Excellent service and what ever you needed you could get. Like our bed was saggy so right away ww go a new mattress Our cabin was always so nice and clean. The slot tournament lady was so helpful and friendly. The bingo guy was excellent he explained the bingo machine in detail for me .

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
So perfect . Ship was the perfect size you could find everything so fast and easy and not have to walk forever from one end of ship to the other. All areas were so clean especially the bathrooms I think they should of had hand sanitizer on every deck by elevators and stairs. But at least they had it in the dining room and a place to wash your hands before you went into the buffet

Cabin / Stateroom
